The lack of faith.  Have you noticed that there are those who love Christ, but don't believe the gifts are for today?  Even Jesus asked at the end of the Parable of the Persistent Widow "when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”  Luke 18:1-8

Well I don't think it is just lack of faith.

Missionaries to India and other unchurched areas of the world see astounding miracles like those in the Bible.  They are as overwhelmed and humbled by what God is doing as the native people are, and many, often thousands are saved.  The pastors know they had very little to do with it all and it was God alone.   When our pastor was involved, thousands came forward for prayer.  They couldn't possibly minister to all of them so he just prayed through a translator "Holy Father, meet their needs in Jesus Name."

Just to add a little to this, I'd also point out that in the western world and parts of Asia, as a general rule we have less -need- for miracles overall. Our lives and lifestyles have changed since the times of the Bible. Modern medicine and health standards keep a lot of disease and suffering in check. The knowledge, tools, and medicines we have are gifts from God. When you think about it the way medicine has outright subdued or eliminated some very serious health threats is a TREMENDOUS miracle, and one that's possible only because God gave humanity a will and a way to make it happen. It's more subtle than instant healing of a lame person but it's also quite widespread. If you look at the sheer degree of prevention and treatment that's available, as well as how readily we can send and receive food from other regions, even distant ones, to deal with poor crops and natural disasters (food and health issues do make up a good chunk of miracles from the Bible, though not all) there are more people being touched by God's blessings than ever. We just have to recognize it and thank God for it.

What did Jesus say to Thomas when he finally believed in his resurrection?

What is it that causes you to believe? the spectical of miracules or the simple truth about the resurection.

Huh? What greater miracle than the indwelling of God the Holy Spirit might one have?

Like Jonah, Jesus; and He Jesus  has left us a comforter and restrainer the Holy Spirit of God until He returns! Many  are called specifically to their own salvation seems an awesome ongoing miracle to me. 

The  miracle that dwells within all Saints in Christ the born again believer bond-servants restraining the evil one so that each may withstand the minions, the little antichrists, and Satan is awesome beyond all other miracles, as it evidences  righteous merciful  love from God. The result of His love being many being  called out to their  salvation and to eternal life with God, with each instructed to be  doing all that they may do to the glory of God is  bow down  before God. Miracle worthy is it not?

 ..."the crowds were increasing, he began to say, 'This generation is an evil generation. It seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah. For as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so will the Son of Man be to this generation.  The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.  The men of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.' "

The very begin to prove God through our senses is the adultery God spoke of …. we are born again s/Spiritually and in this reality it does not seek validity from that which passes away ....
